    I’m having prepaid BSNL GSM. I’m using the Rs.71/- booster card for rate cutter. But i’m not able to know the expiry date in any way. Pls help me how can i know the expiry date of booster expiry.
    Previously you have displayed the booster expiry date along with account balance when using *123#. It was very useful. Now you have disabled this option.
    Then there was an option 5 to know booster expiry in 123 ivrs menu. It was also disabled now.
    So, pls help me how can know this booster expiry date.
    It’s very urgent.

    Hai Sanjay Bafna, very useful information that i could not get any where. it is crystal clear…thanks

  • Michael December 21, 2010 2:44 pm

    3G has any 3 of same boosters obviously without Group IV GPRS. Group 1 as follows:
    Name of Booster MRP Validity
    Local/National SMS@Rs. 0.01/SMS 13 30
    Local calls on net@Rs. 0.10/min 65 30
    Local calls on net@Rs. 0.20/min 36 30
    Local calls to any network@Rs. 0.30/min 61 30
    Local & STD calls on net Rs. 0.20/min 47 30
    Local video calls free 125 minutes 57 30

    Another important thing check the respective BSNL/MTNL websites according to the circle you are in and then preferably approach the BSNL offices in your respective areas and confirm with them before doing anything, because they themselves are sometimes not very well informed. You will find the respective brochures for 2G/3G broadband etc. though most of the time you have to check if they are updated ones and also they might not have brochures for the main plan that they are selling for eg: En Nanban Super etc were not even having a single brochure for the customers to know how to add the additional discounted rate numbers. So please go through the same and read between the lines any conditions apply * check carefully and then make a decision. Check the notice boards too. Know the difference between a recharge card and a top up card(recharge is for extending validity, topup is for talk time). Find out the validity conditions of your scheme. Find out what is the minimum recharge amount to keep the card active within its speculated time frame.

    If you say or think you don’t have the time to do all that later don’t be sorry. For a fact I know that most of the time BSNL will have some prices mentioned on its site, or No initial charges ads even in the office, etc, but when you go to purchase or take up the service it will differ. EVDO card mentioned Rs. 2100 but given at Rs. 3450 some years back. No Installation Charges etc, but Rs. 500 collected so everything is not what it seems. When you are well informed itself you are cheated like hell so don’t be ignorant and expect to be spoonfed all the time and always remember this saying “NOTHING IS FREE,” there’s always a CATCH! Lift your butts off the ground and make an effort the next time you want to know something. That is why today we are sitting with all the scams today because none are well informed!!!

  • velu June 18, 2010 4:37 pm

    how can we know the GPRS balance? i asked the customer care and got the reply this is not possible. so we have to be very careful before reaching the limit otherwise our main balance will be taken for the GPRS usage.

  • Harpreet Singh Chadha June 17, 2010 10:19 am

    i am AP BSNL user.i am following this add since from 2 weeks.i am interested in RC61 for 30ps call. so went to original bsnl website for online recharge. but this option was not available. only regular topups are available. when i want to confirm with customer care. they use to tell as no information is available for them. when i went to dellar. he also dont know. even the distributer also telling that i dont know about this offer. so i request BSNL to intimate the offer details to customer care and distributer first and then display in website !

  • Keshav June 17, 2010 12:03 am

    Many STV’s are very costly. Very bad plans.
